TED Talk: Equal Parts Science and Magic

The unity of science and religion is an important concept in the Baha’i Faith. They are two sides of the same coin. One side looks ahead with faith. One side looks backwards without faith. One is impatient while the other is deliberately slow. Where the two agree is the sweet spot of true knowledge. There is a stage in the scientific method full of looking forward with faith: Ask a question.

Asking a question is the. most. important step. Everything depends upon it. Not asking the right question ensures nothing will be tried. And humanity suffers. Unless someone else gathers up the faith to do so.

Also, I am apparently a fan of spoken word artists. There is something about the cadence and flow that I like.

Talon of the Silver Hawk

I have not read any of Feist's work since maybe just after college. Ironically, I did get one of his books in high school and put it down. Prince of the Blood seemed weighted on events completely off my radar. I ended up reading two other trilogies to get the background I needed for Prince.

So, Talon seems of the same caliber. I recall enough of the worldly background to keep me going in this book. However, I kind of wish I didn't need to remember more to truly enjoy this book.

Still, the book flows and has enough good writing to keep me engaged. Guess I better go get books 2 and 3.

Why is it book stores don't often carry all the books in a series? I am not about to order a book from a store and have to go there when I can more easily order it myself for less and have it come to me.
